Testimonials, Experience, and Qualifications


From Alane, who also taught social dance in Omaha:

I have the privilege of recommending to you a very dear friend of mine, Jean Zartner, who I have known for many years. She is a very friendly, outgoing, personable woman. She has inspired many people over the years with her love of dance and expertise in this area. Many people who felt like they had two left feet, found that with her guidance and instruction, she could give them a new joy and interest they never thought possible -- the love of dance! I would highly refer any individuals or groups to Jean for expert leadership in the art of dance! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

From Loretta and Frank, Omaha
Past Presidents of the Country Kickers Dance Club

Gosh, where do I begin? If it weren't for Jean Zartner, there wouldn't have been country dancing in Omaha, Nebraska - at least any we could be proud of. She taught us everything we know from steps to rhythm to dance floor etiquette! She teaches with class, intelligence and that twinkle in her eye that makes you want to learn and have fun doing it. I have had many, many dance teachers and none of them could hold a candle to Jean Zartner. When she left Omaha, part of us left with her and she has never been replaced. It would be kind of like taking Garth out of country music…I almost feel inclined to move to Colorado because I would love to learn that cha-cha! Please feel free to write me if you have any questions or need any further glowing - she is the best and will always be.
